readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

Don't ignore readme.txt as it is the file that instructs WordPress.org on how to present your plugin to the world
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots do not have images: #1 (An example of the main avatars administration page. Manage users global and local avatars etc.), #2 (The avatars options configuration section of the main avatars administration page.), #3 (The WordPress profile page shows the new floating section showing the current avatar. Click manage to change.), #4 (Avatar Management popup. Allowing upload of local avatars, with crop option, and setting of a Twitter ID.), #5 (Sample avatars: local, global, retro, gravatar, blank, wavatar, identicon, monsters, twitter - the lot!), #6 (Example of the optional simple sidebar widget allowing users to manage their own avatar. Available from the plugin's homepage.)
Please take inspiration from this readme.txt
